If you aren't going to breastfeed..

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Then pay for your own formula! If you can't bf for a real medical reason, then this isn't directed towards you. If you are simply just choosing to not bf because you don't feel like it, don't want to get saggy boobs (which isn't caused by bf anyway), don't want to be tied down, etc, then pay for your OWN formula. Why choose not to bf when you're perfectly capable to for free, and choose to go get WIC and have them provide you with formula? It costs the government millions every year. If you CHOOSE not to nurse, fine, but be prepared to provide for own child then, because you're choosing to opt out of the free option!

tongue ties can be clipped. My son had a tongue tie and we nursed for two years on his own demand after it was clipped.  Poor excuse.

Nope.
Nada.
Not one bit.

Could give a fuck less what a stranger on the internet says I should or should not be doing.

Because some people have to go back to work by 8-12wks and can't past that point.  It usually has NOTHING to do with being lazy or a moocher. 

Some people just can't handle the demands physically and mentally.

You are not so high and mighty and perfect that you have any right to judge anyone for anything.

This post isn't about you then. Read more carefully. I'm talking about people who just didn't feel like it.


Quoting heythereelizah:

Because I don't fucking want to, that's why. I rather not deal With the postpartum depression it caused. Breastfeeding isn't great for everyone. Not everyone bonds doing it. It made me resent my daughter and I feel so bad that i let people bully me into doing it with my first. I was so miserable with her. I wish I had stood up for myself like I did with my new baby and formula fed the way I wanted to. I'm so much closer with her.

She's meaning don't expect someone else to pay for your choice.

Quoting CheesyKitty:

Hey guess what, it's free for them! Wow that's killed your logic pretty quick. Free or free? Hmm shut up.
